Re: Best gimbal for A7iii + 16-35GM ?

I use the Zhiyun Crane 2 with my A7III with FE 28-70 2.8 GM which is around the same weight / dims as the FE16-35 2.8 GM, which I also hired to use on a video shoot. Once balanced it handled the weight with ease.

The camera rear monitor does come a little close to the rear of the gimbal though and I use an additional mounting block to give it even more clearance - but I also use an external monitor as well.

There's a few other gimbals around and I don't know enough to say if they are better or worse though. The one potential downside on my rig is the Zhiyun's in built follow focus wheel operation does not support Sony - but I mainly shoot MF anyway.

If follow focus is key to you is key then best hone in on which ones do or don't support that.
